DISCLAIMER: I received this keyboard for free in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.
It uses plate-mounted Outemu switches (manufactured by Gaote). It feels sturdy to type on, and the sliders feel smooth enough. I don't personally prefer the Outemu switches, as their activation point is actually slightly below the tactile bump, rather than exactly on the bump as with most other Cherry clones. This might not matter to some. If you usually bottom out your keypresses, it won't cause problems.
As would be expected with any keyboard using blue switches, it is fairly loud. You can effectively quiet it using a set of O-ring switch dampeners, which are fairly cheap to come by. It will still be very clicky, but you'll reduce the total noise level by a lot.
Overall, I do like the keyboard, but personally, I'll probably be replacing the switches down the road.
This mechanical keyboard does weigh a bit more than the average capacitive keyboard. It weighs in at 1.9 pounds, which is a lot, but still not as heavy as some other full sized, 104-key keyboards. Because this keyboard weighs less and is shorter than a lot of other mechanical keyboards, it’s ideal for traveling and taking with you from place to place.
I think one of the most attractive features of the F2012 is its price. It’s a very affordable mechanical keyboard and it’s great for anyone who is looking to add to their gaming accessories. It’s got a great clickety feeling when you type and it looks great on a desk, too.
AULA makes some really great mechanical keyboards – the Wings of Liberty and F2012 are only two examples. They are built from quality materials and are affordable. Even though I haven’t used them for gaming, I think they would be great fun for that purpose.

I spend hours on this keyboard every evening and am very pleased with it's performance. It delivers solid performance and a reasonable price. I'm considering getting one for work.
